From a post awhile back.....

Love 'em (so far)

Just bought a pair and really love the idea of "convertibility". I had the earlier version Simms made, the RiverTek convertible, and really liked the option of using them just as a pant wader...great for those hot summer days on small streams, particularly here in CA. They finally wore out so I bought these.

I've used them about a dozen times so far and found them to be very comfortable. Having said that, I've always found wader fit to be very go try 'em on. The suspenders are comfortable, I like the built in, yeah, a qualified thumbs up.

Now....a wee caveat. The suspenders attach via a hook and loop setup and I found that when donning the waders, these can become "unhooked". Not a big deal, a very minor annoyance and quite easy to re-attach.

Good product.
